MFM sub-specialists are doctors who've finished a maternal fetal medicine fellowship after their ob-gyn residency.
Due to this training, MFM doctors:
- Provide care or consults for both mom and fetus during a high-risk pregnancy.
- Research the most recent approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of MFM health problems.
- Work with your ob-gyn to co-manage, consult, or manage care both before and during pregnancy.
- Collaborate with PCPs and certified nurse-midwives.
The relationship between your providers and the MFM sub-specialist will depend on your condition and personal needs.
